Las Vegas was still a small town in 1980 with roughly 500,000 inhabitants. Woodworker's Emporium was started in the corner of a custom furniture shop with a few woodworking hand tools and some imported European hardware for sale. As the town grew, so did the demand for quality woodworking tools. Over the years, we grew to be the valley's primary carpentry supplier, selling everything from sandpaper to industrial machinery. Today Woodworker's Emporium is Southern Nevada's largest woodworking machinery dealer, occupying a 12000 sqft retail store in the industrial district of Las Vegas. The brands we offer have changed over the years, but our mission has not: provide high quality tools and machinery.
At Woodworker's Emporium, we still believe that when you buy a machine, it should last a lifetime. That is why, when our interests turned to woodturning, we started importing Vicmarc lathes from Australia. Vicmarc lathes are widely regarded as some of the best on the market when it comes to smoothness and reliability. It is not uncommon to see a professional woodturner using a Vicmarc lathe and/or chuck.
Though the primary focus of our physical store is still carpentry tools and supplies, our first website was built in response to a national demand for Vicmarc products. Over the years, the growth of woodturning and our own passion for the subject has prompted us to offer a growing line of woodturning equipment and tools. The most recent addition is Robust, an exceptional quality woodturning line made right here in America.
Our physical storefront is located in Southwest Las Vegas at 5461 Arville St., about half a block north of Russell.
